“So far, we have our own engine and manufacture around 30 units per year. We need about 300 (units). I hope that in the near future funds will be allocated, including state ones, and we have already allocated own funds for production expansion. From late 2016 until mid-2017, I think, we can reach the level of 300 engines per year,” he said.
The issue concerns helicopter and ship engines, those that have been produced by Ukrainian partners, Chemezov said, adding that the situation with ship engines is more difficult as Russian enterprises lack some equipment, primarily, testing equipment, to establish own production.
